On Sikh Sheroes and Heroes

Last night, I watched a great awards program. No it wasnt the Emmys or hero.jpgGrammys (I only know one person that watches those!). It was far more meaningful.

It is called CNN Heroes.

CNN launched its second annual global search for ordinary people accomplishing extraordinary deeds in February. The network has aired weekly CNN Hero profiles of those people, chosen from more than 3,700a nominations submitted by viewers in 75 countries.

I am sure it will be replayed to death on CNN over the next few days. It will be airing at 2pm EST on Christmas Day.

With the calendar year 2008 coming to an end (the Nanakshahi Calendar year 540 still has some time to go), I have been reflecting a bit on the subject of heroes and sheroes. I know I have blogged on some, some, some, some, and some this year.

Still I wonder who are your Sikh heroes and sheroes? Tell us who and why? I’d love to hear about those truly unheralded sheroes and heroes that do various seva with love without any expectation of recognition.

  1. Well, the question raised needs to be searched. I won't give the reply over here as I can't but would definitely like to mention that recently I have started a blog that talk of such people. i would definitely like to raise this issue over there also. It's will be just a kind of community service or sewa as we call it in Sikhism to find out Sikh heroes and sheroes. So let' do it? I alone can't but a no. of us together can.

    Education is very important for every country to meet its development targets. We should have qualified staff of doctor and modern technologies because now we see many disease in people like heart problems, cancer as well as surgery in different part of body.
